Alternate Boulder Start: begin in the carbonized corner of the Rock and find the few good handholds; pull up and traverse the boulder using decent smears and a few dishes, handholds are fairly well spaced. Throw high hands in to the chockstones and mantel up, then proceed into the chimney like normal. I'd probably call it a 5.8 start if I had to guess, but it also seems a little less sketchy than the entrance directly below the chimney. I'd still belay from the same spot and not place gear in until in the chimney proper.
